Show Notes

This is a podcast where I talk to my guests about their journey to success. We talk about their education, experience, current business, and future endeavours. 

A feature length episode with Ibrahim Abdel Rahim, who is Managing Partner at Moonbase Capital. 

This interview is something different, we cover an area of business that I wasn’t aware of. 

Ibrahim talks about his early experience in his father’s business. He then spent time in management consulting where he learned a ton. He then re-joined his father’s business and sold it to a larger company, then grew this business. 

Ibrahim spent time at Stanford where Search Funds were a hot topic and he decided to start a business. Search Funds are a way to buy and grow SMEs with the right investor/mentor. We go into a lot of detail about Search Funds, which you might find useful. 

 We discuss his future plans for his business Moonbase Capital which is very interesting. The quick-fire round is revealing.
